I was going to the basement to wash some laundry, and I noticed there was a package on the back porch.  Forgetting all about the laundry, I ran to pick it up.  There, was a box from Jessicakes.  She sent me not one, but two beautiful scarves!!  My favorite is the burnt red suedey scarf with leaves and silver stitching all over.  She also sent me a wonderful crocheted orange, brown, and tan scarf.  Yeah!  I am so lucky.  I love them both!!!

I will post pics later this weekend.

Thanks so much, Jessicakes!!

woo hoo! i got my fall swap packie from IQ Jones!  It contained:  three super yummy fall scented candles, awesome fall themed stationary (maybe now i'll write some letters to my family!), some Hello Kitty Halloween fabric (how did you know I love Hello Kitty?!), and two beautiful pins, one flower (I was totally jealous of the flower pin swap ladies) and one leaf with silver bead work for the veins.  I'm so psyched about everything!  I think I'm going to swap out the two pins on my winter coat this year, they both match very well!  IQ Jones, if you have any pics to post, that would be great!  I'm sending my packie tomorrow!

Here are the beautiful scarves Jessicakes sent me

The picture doesn't do it justice. She put several different fall colored leaves all over the scarf. Yesterday, I wore this one all day long.



The second scarf is super cute too!  The both go well with my new olive colored cord jacket!



Thank-you so much, Jessicakes!!! I love them both!

I'm so glad you like them!! I was kinda worried Smiley I'm glad they go with your jacket too Smiley Actually, the first scarf was just some fabric I found in the remnant bin at JoAnn's...it's came with the leaves already on it!! (I wish I was cool enough to do something like that though Smiley)

DeniseM- I received the package from you today!
Thank you-- it made me smile & I really needed that!
I am putting it on the center of the kitchen table so everyone can see it.
You can see in the picture how well it compliments the (newish) color of our kitchen!
Thanks!!!

Ok, so I was having a crappy day and then I get home and checked the mail box and what was in there? A "You have a package in the office" slip...so I ran (not walked) to the office and could hardly contain my glee when I saw my fall swap stuff from jpants!! I could barely keep myself from tearing into it before I reached my apartment! When I opened the box I found the following items:

Leaf stickers and stick on flower pebbles for scrapbooking Smiley



Candle holder with a leaf on it and a little notepad with a matching leaf! (off to the left are the fake leaves that were wrapped around everything)




And the beautiful scarf that I haven't taken off since I took the picture Smiley (The picture does not do it justice)



thank you so much jpants!! I love everything and you made my day Smiley

hooray!  this was by far my favorite swap to make stuff for.  I meant to tell you, the scarf is landscapes by lion brand.  apparently it will felt if you wash it in the machine, so wash by hand if you need to.  enjoy everything!   Kiss
